After Eight Show - 16/11/21
More great New Music You Just Don't Hear Anywhere Else! in this week's episode.Our our ALBUM OF THE WEEK actually comes from last year but we have only just become aware of it and it is sensational! The album is 'Two Of Me' and it's by Momma. They're a brilliant 4-piece indie rock band from LA."Momma's Two Of Me is a twisted, enchanting carnival ride ... the music itself, which draws you in with grungy yet sunwashed chords. It’s the aural version of when you close your eyes on a sunny day, heat pouring in red through the lids. “Bug House,” the sprawling opener, lulls you into a false sense of security before escalating into a vortex of heavy distortion." Paste In our Luvva Cover feature, we will be playing a really inventive version of one of The Beach Boys' best known songs. It's by Shovels and Rope and also features the incredible Sharon Van Etten - give it a listen and decide for yourself!New Music You Just Don't Hear Anywhere Else!Playlist:Blackbirds – Ghostly KissesSpoonful – The Reverend Shawn AmosBloom Rapids – L-spaceNea Kypseli – Keep Shelly In AthensBiohazard – Momma (Album of the Week)A Mouthful Of Magnificent Spite – Salvation JayneFall Back – AsiahnCarry On – Akemi FoxHeavenly (A Real Birds remix) – Cold HeavenStrange Town (Julia Holter remix) – Buzzy Lee, Julia HolterIn My Room – The Beach BoysIn My Room – Shovels & Rope, Sharon Van Etten (Luvva Cover feature)Now That’s All Changed – Hugo KantSoft Warm Good – ErothymeNot A Runner - MommaTrue Love – HovvdyN’yanyan - Rokia Koné, Jacknife LeeMoreno (El Búho remix) – Dom La Nena, El BúhoColdhearted, Lately – KhushiSam – Asch-RoseStay – Valerie JuneOctober – Juliet & NanetteHabitat - Momma
